ECTS system at ETSIIT


The University of Granada is finishing the process of changing degrees to conform to the Bologna Process. The new degrees (Grados) in Computer Science and Telecommunications are offered from 2010/2011. It means that

  • From 2013/2014 the full 4-year, 240-ECTS new degrees (Grados) are offered at ETSIIT.
  • Master (Bologna) courses and projects will not be offered until 2014/2015. ETSIIT, however, offers some Master programs and post-graduate programs for PhD. students. Master courses (in the actual format) and Ph.D. courses are not available for incoming students to ETSIIT, and students interested in such courses must contact us (etsi2doc@ugr.es) in order to check availability and admission.

Courses at ETSIIT


Language of instruction is Spanish for all courses (ETSIIT does not impose any linguistic requirement for incoming students, but a B1 in Spanish is strongly recommended).

Courses can be:

  • “Anual”: the whole academic year.
  • “Cuatrimestral”: Only one semester or term (most of ETSIIT courses are of this type).
    • “Primer cuatrimestre” or “cuatrimestre 1” (1st semester or 1st term) will start by the end of September and will finish mid-February (including exams).
    • “Segundo cuatrimestre” or “cuatrimestre 2” (2nd semester or 2nd term) will start mid-February and will finish mid-July (including exams).

All the workload is measured in ECTS, with most courses comprising 6 ECTS. The usual workload for a semester is 30 ECTS, or 60 ECTS for a full academic year.

Exchange students at ETSIIT-UGR can take any course offered by our Faculty, no matter the student´s specialization (but for a few exceptions that will be noted to you during the on-line application process in case you selected them).

Grading system


Most of the courses offered at ETSIIT have a double examination system; theoretical test and course works (lab work mainly).

The first is an -usually written- exam based on the contents of the lectures. The course works are, in most of the cases, compulsory and usually consist of lab projects that the student must carry out either individually or in group.

The value of any of these parts depends on the course. The final numerical grade is a number between 0.0 and 10.0 and the student must get more than 5.0 to pass the course:

MARK GRADE ECTS GRADE
10.0 (only for max. 5% of registered students) MATRICULA DE HONOR A EXCELLENT
10.0 SOBRESALIENTE A EXCELLENT
9.0-9.9 SOBRESALIENTE B VERY GOOD
7.0-8.9 NOTABLE C GOOD
6.0-6.9 APROBADO D SATISFACTORY
5.0-5.9 APROBADO E SUFFICIENT
0.0-4.9 SUSPENSO F FAIL
NO PRESENTADO Did not take the exam

If a student pass the course (>5.0 for the set of theoretical test and course work), then gets the whole number of credits associated to the course. It is not possible to get a partial number of credits, and the course as a whole has to be passed.
